This is my Pistol Wear PT-2 holster. It's designed for the gun to be carried on the front of the body, completely within the pouch and with the grip pointed up for easy access. It is also not sufficient to prevent an accidental trigger pull through the material so they recommend carrying without a round in the chamber.



This was my solution to the two major flaws in the design of the PT-2. I molded this kydex insert to fit my Kahr CW9. It provides the trigger with sufficient protection and gives me the ability to cant the gun however I want. The material on the outside of the insert is non-slip rubber mesh that I adhered with a spray-on adhesive.



The insert is placed into the PT-2 this way. I use a Velcro strip to keep the insert canted and fully to one side of the pouch. The other half of the pouch is left empty, although I could feasably carry spare magazines there if I wanted.



Here, the gun is placed into the insert while it's in the pouch. The trigger is protected by the kydex and my body is protected by the pouch.

This is what it looks like in my waist band. Notice I don't locate the pouch on the front of my body but instead I carry it at the 4:30 position just like my other holsters.



Since the holster doesn't clip to my belt, I can fully tuck my shirt around the gun for complete concealment. As you can see, the gun is all but invisible. The only part that can be seen is a very slight protrusion from the floorplate of the magazine.

I wouldn't have known that was the floorplate unless you said so. It looks like a simple wrinkle haha.

Hides the firearm really well...but looks like it would be hard to draw if needed.

As long as it works for you...good job !

It's no more difficult to draw than any holster that has the shirt tucked around. The weak hand must rip the shirt out of the waist band to allow the strong hand access to the firearm.

man is that thing comfortable? Wonder how it would do with my 19, I can think of several very good uses for this....
Yes. I can wear it for over 12 hours with no discomfort. The really nice thing is that the set up is totally compatible with all types of clothing. I have lounged around in my house with this rig on underneath my pajamas.

Yea I have been making kydex holsters for a few years now. TYhanks for the link!
For the Kydex piece, just "borrow" the idea of the mic holster and get (or form) a piece of Kydex that only covers the trigger guard but no where else.

That looks like a great idea. How difficult is it to re-holster you're firearm? You should get it patented.
I made the kydex insert prior to actually having the PT-2 holster. Therefore, it isn't the exact right shape to fit in the area it can occupy. If I make a new insert that fits exactly, reholstering would be very easy, as it is, reholstering takes a little manipulation of the fabric on the holster. Reholstering is important when drilling but less so in a life threatening encounter.

I'd love to get it patented. Anyone got several hundred dollars I can have? :D

For Glock 30/23/36/27 I have the Shielded Holster Phalanx and for the revolvers I have a Ray Cory Lobo Leather Pancake Holster:

The LCR has a Blackhawk pocket holster. If I ever get my Diamondback DB9 back, I would use my Desantis Nemesis packet holster.

I don't plan on carrying my Colt 1911 Mars Armament T.H.U.G. But I have a holster for it (Bianchi):
